The goods. This is the goods. Gorgeous, haunting nose of flowers, mid season red cherry fruit and spices. This is decidedly red fruited and super pure. Love all the spice, mint and wild herb topnotes as well. Palate is so ethereal and lithe with wonderful purity of fruit and just incredible and engaging freshness. Delicate and slate like tannins and just super juicy and pure. Really well balanced and just a complete package here. So juicy with lovely tiny berry fruit intensity and a slippery feeling. It slips and slides in one’s palate. Very very special. As it airs the spice on the nose gets deafening. This is something. Also a meaty element to the nose and the finish here. Stupid good balance and lovely structure that will ensure 10+ years and surely longer. A fantastically pure bottle of Volnay 1er Cru. — 6 days ago
It’s just under the 2 hour mark in the decanter when it absolutely takes off. Reduction moves aside and intense aromas of dark fruit, rose petals and exotic spices soar from the glass. There is great depth and concentration, nothing lean about this wine from the vintage.
It has such energy and drive on the palate, asserting all of its complex flavors before a seamless transition to its lifted, lengthy and mineral driven finish. Very approachable in its early stages with sufficient air. I love Meo’s wines in what are considered leaner and more “elegant/lighter” vintages. I think it balances and accentuates their style beautifully. — 18 days ago
Smells fruity with a hint of vinegar and a finish of chocolate plum. Nice swirl but not too much cling. Then you taste it and mmmmm flowers. There is no dry bitter anything. Just zing zang yum. I love this wine. It’s just fun. It’s not one thing or the other. Just fabulous and would be enjoyed by any pallet. Definitely would recommend 👌 — 8 days ago
